Before a Disaster

Make plans for your animals too

A. Set up a Buddy System

Set up a neighborhood buddy system in case you are not home when a disaster occurs. Let your neighbors know where your animals are likely to be and where you keep their leashes and crates. Get the same information from your neighbors for their pets. Decide on a place to meet in case you have to evacuate each other's pets. Exchange names of veterinarians and leave permission on file at vet's office to treat your pet in case of injury if you are unavailable.

B. Transporting animals

Have enough carriers (not cardboard) for all the pets in your house.
Disaster supplies can be stored in the carriers. Do NOT transport a pet loose in your car. Be sure your pet has identification on its collar! Do NOT leave your pet behind if you have to evacuate unless absolutely necessary. If you do have to leave a pet behind, leave food and water for 5 days in a safe place. Make sure they have an escape route if you leave them in the house: an exit in case of fire or a high place above any potential flooding. Do not chain them or leave in a kennel if fire or flood is likely. Evacuate your pets as soon as you can!

C. Temporary housing

Check animal shelters in your area and find out if they have a plan for housing pets in case of a disaster. Establish several alternative locations where you can take your pet if you have to evacuate: vet clinics, family, friends, rescue groups, boarding kennels. etc.
Be sure your pet has identification - including the number where you may be reached if you are not at home. Leave clothing with your scent on it with your pet if you have to leave it in a crate or a new location.

D. Vacation plans

If your pets stay at home, be sure the person caring for them is aware of your disaster plans and where all the crate, kits, leashes, etc. are kept.Leave them your itinerary and how you can be reached should a disaster occur (Car make and license and route of travel are helpful.)
Authorize your petsitter to get medical care for your pets if necessary.
